Misono is one of the best kitchen knife makers in the world and their Molybdenum Steel Series are their most affordable range of knives. However, the quality and finish of these highly practical and functional knives is equal to that of Misono’s more expensive product lines. Indeed, Misono’s high standards of quality have not been compromised in the slightest.
The blade is made from AUS-8 (HRc. 57), a high carbon 13 Chrome Molybdenum stainless steel that has strong corrosion-resistance, great durability, high cutting performance and is easy to re-sharpen.
This knife features full tang construction, water-resistant black pakkawood (Resin impregnated wood composite) handle scales and stainless steel bolsters for extra durability and improved blade balance.
A mainstay of professional Western kitchens, the Petty knife is a small general-purpose knife used for peeling, shaping, and slicing fruits and vegetables, chopping herbs, and making garnishes. The compact size and relatively narrow blade of the Petty knife mean that it is very nimble and controllable, thus it is ideal for making precise cuts.
